Ziegfeld Girl

BB

(out of 5)


The star power of , and  is reason enough to watch this overbloated MGM spectacular. Three women want to get into the big time of the Ziegfeld follies and each use whatever means to do it. This is another one of those films where Garland blows the audience away with her phenomenal voice and physical beauty, but for some reason minimally-talented blonde Turner gets all the great love scenes, and exotic beauty Lamarr is someone that (as in all her Hollywood films) the film just has no idea what to do with. Garland’s “Minnie From Trinidad” is marvelous, but the rest is a soap-opera bore.
